    "When We Two Parted"

  1. Author: Byron, George Gordon
    Title: "When We Two Parted"
    Date: 1816
    Genre: poetry
    Note Relating to Cather: In My Antonia IV, when Antonia and Jim Burden meet after years apart, Cather turns the meaning of Byron's line "When we two parted in silence and tears" to "like people in the old song, in silence, if not in tears." In Lucy Gayheart Part I, Lucy hears Sebastian Clement sing a vocal adaptation of Byron's poetry, then recalls it later when they part.
